So the girl that is doing my hair is a friend of the families and her daughter is actually going to be in the wedding as a jr. bridesmaid. I saw her yesterday for a trim and a hair trial for the wedding.
Here were my inspiration pictures:
And here is how my hair turned out:
I think that it turned out REALLY close to my last inspiration photo. She said that she couldn’t really take my hair up on the sides any more since it is so thin she wanted some to frame my face(as did I). She also convinced me to get hihlights in my hair. She said that highlights would make my hair pop more and would look much better in photos. So in about two more weeks I am going to have her put some blonde highlights in.
What do you think?
I forgot to mention too that I slept on it and alot of the curls still held this morning.

I think it looks great. The only change I would recommend is curling the ends a bit. They look too straight in the trial photos. i think the curled ends would really help finish the style.

I think it looks more like a wave than a curl like in your pictures. I think it would frame your face better if it was a curl.

She used a straigtner to curl my hair, should I ask her to use a curler on the day of?

i think it looks nice- but i totally agree with both PP..i think the ends are a bit straight an the hair has more waves then curls per say.
that aside it hink the look is very flattering on you and im sure you will look stunning on your day!

Where did you find the first inspiration pic? Can you link? I’d love to see that hair style in different views if I could find them! Thanks

I definitley think she should use a curling iron and do softer curls. Looks like the inspiration though.

I agree with PP, you definitely need more curl to your hair. I also would suggest just playing with the hair by your face – I think it would look more flattering with the shorter front pieces up as well, but that may just be my taste.

@chelles07: My hairdresser used a straightener to curl my hair, too, and my curls were nice and soft. I don’t have any good hair shots uploaded to my WB account, but I’ll try to find one later and upload for you 🙂
My only other thought was, since your hair looks really thick, maybe it just doesn’t hold curl well, and that’s why the ends look straight??

It kind of looks too…. uniform? The inspiration picture looks sort of like the bride shook out her head and BAM. Majestic curls. Your waves are a little too…. planned? For my taste anyhow.

I think you are just gorgeous and have a perfect face for pretty much any hairstyle (lucky you!!!!) . Critiquing the hairstyle, I think that the curls need to be bouncier…so the completed hairstyle sits at the collarbone. I love the top, though! Hilights would make it pop, my hair is EXACTLY the same colour as your but you have peachy undertones, so light hilights would look awesome on you and complement the curls.
If she is doing your hair and colour, gently remind her to keep in mind that you are wearing part of your hair up (when she is doing the foils…) you don’t want any weird lines.
Looks awesome!!!!! Good luck!

I personally think the volume and shape is great. She probably used a straightener because your hair is thin and they can get hotter. However, it is the technique and type of straightener that is causing the effect. It looks like crimping waves instead of curls (both of which are possible with a straightner). My guess is that she kept it more wavy to keep the length. I know that I lose 2-3 inches of hair to curls when I curl mine. If you want the curls tighter, she should be able to do it. You just may look like you have much shorter hair.

If I’m completely honest I don’t think it looks very natural. I dont think I’ve ever seen someone with hair that naturally waves like that. I do think she nailed the style but the look will really come together if she uses a curling iron instead of a flat.

Agreed that a curler will solve that minor issue. Beautiful hairstyle and you are going to look GORGEOUS! 🙂

I agree with the PPs about the ends of your hair. Either way, I think you’re going to look gorgeous!
